Activity Overview


An exceptional way for your students to follow a story is for them to track the events from it. Not only is this a great way to teach the parts of a plot, but it also reinforces major events, which helps students develop better understanding of how the events fit together to provide the overall structure of the story. Use the storyboard above as a template, or create your own. Copying the assignment will provide you with a blank sequencing timeline as well as the completed example to edit as you wish.



Sequence of Events for The 13 Clocks


Event Number Text Paraphrase
Event One "...the Duke decided he had murdered time, slain it with his sword, and wiped his bloody blade upon its beard and left it lying there, bleeding hours and minutes."The Duke 'murders' time. He keeps Princess Saralinda locked in his castle and gives impossible tasks for her suitors.
Event Two "I make mistakes, but I am on the side of Good."Xingu (Zorn of Zorna) comes to town in search of a fair maiden. He decides he wants to try for Saralinda's hand in marriage. He and Golux form a plan.
Event Three "I give you nine and ninety hours, not nine and ninety days, to find a thousand jewels and bring them here. When you return the clocks must all be striking five."The Duke knows Xingu is Zorn of Zorna and he gives him a seeming impossible task for Saralinda's hand.
Event Four "Hagga laughed and kept on laughing, and precious jewels twinkled down her cheek and sparkled on the floor, until the hut was ankle-deep in diamonds and in rubies."Zorn and Golux search for the 1,000 jewels. They go to Hagga's house and make her laugh so she cries jewels. Long ago King Gwain granted her the power to cry jewels.
Event Five "If you can touch the clocks and never start them, then you can start the clocks and never touch them."When they get back to the castle, Princess Saralinda, helps them unfreeze the clocks.
Event Six "She's not my niece. I stole her from a king."Zorn completes the impossible task. The Duke tells them that Saralinda was not his niece and that he stole her long ago. Hark reveals that he is King Gwain's servant.
Event Seven "Princess Saralinda thought she saw, as people often think they see, on clear and windless days, the distant shining shores of Ever After."Zorn and Saralinda ride off, happily. The Duke is eaten by the Todal.
